    This Stuff Kills The Mound
    A neighbor recommended the Ortho Orthene Fire Ant Killer. I'm glad he did! I can spread a little of the power on the mound and the mound is dead the next day. I have been using this product for years and I'm satisfied with how quickly it gets rid of the mound. Note! While it does get rid of the mound, that doesn't mean another mound won't pop-up somewhere else. If another mound appears, it gets the same treatment!

    2. No, Ortho Orthene Fire Ant Control is not labeled to kill cockroaches. It is for fire ant control in the lawn and should not be used in any type of dwelling.

    3. yes this kills anything of insect, amphibian, etc.. that moves! It is an outstanding product. This product kills flies, fleas, ticks, small roaches to gigantic roaches. inside and outside the home. Although , when using this product inside the home please be very very careful. you should only use a old spoon that you can dispose of. Sprinkle this product behind heavy places where children cannot have access to this. It is fantastic. The yard is also great. Not good around plants. But yes around tool sheds, storage sheds, old cars abandoned property etc... I would not trade this product for a million bucks. Way cheaper than paying exterminators who intentionally come out for 300.00 or greater only to return for most cases in 30 days. Use this and 9 out of 10 times you won't need and exterminator.

    2. This product is labeled as toxic to birds. It is best to apply when wildlife activity is at a minimum and never apply to a known wildlife food source. In situations such as this, it is advisable to contact the manufacturer directly. We can be reached at 1-877-465-5160.
